This symlink needs to be relative instead of absolute.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. cd /usr/share/applications
2. ls -al gnome-gdmsetup.desktop
Actual Results: Absolute symlink
Expected Results: Relative symlink
Why do you want the symlink to be relative instead of absolute? Are you running
chroots or something?
The original goal was menu editing. The code would copy the symlinks
and would need to use a modified desktop file with the same name in
the user's home directory. So with absolute symlinks it would still
point to the original and break things. Plus the majority of links are
Chroots are also a good point.
should be changed in rawhide soon.
